Garden Stroll

9 Mar

This breezy, ethereal photo shoot is making me long for warm days when only the most minimal of clothing could possibly be comfortable.I love the frilly, floral and utterly feminine mood; if you are bold enough for wearing lingerie as outer-wear, this is a perfect bit of inspiration for pulling that off.

Let’s go cherry picking and stain our fingers purple!

Lucy B Tempting

26 Feb

Hello Dolls!

I thought I’d show you some of my favorite pin-up lingerie from Los Angeles based-designer, Lucy B. Naughty, flirty, sweet and sultry, the thing I love most about Lucy B is everything!

The satin stripe on the back of the Scantie Panty is so naughty and fun. I mean SERIOUSLY, this is so sexy! I love the shape of the panty too; I bet it’s super flattering and the matching garter belt actually looks comfortable (imagine that). The Sweet Tart Underwire Bra & Panty is super sassy too, all retro bullet bra with modern femme details, satin bows and flattering black mesh.

Claudette Lingerie

20 Nov

Hello lovely. How have you been? I do hope you are feeling well. Myself, I am keen to introduce you to another lovely new lingerie brand. People often say that comfort is key, and Claudette has that in spades.

Claudette Lingerie

The creator and founder of Claudette, Robin Levitt, and her team of women had a simple wish:

“All we wanted was a pretty bra that fit”

The designers set out with this idea and took matters into their own hands. Now we have Claudette, an entire collection of lingerie that fulfills so many other wishes: beautiful, flattering, comfortable, luxurious and affordable.

Claudette Brassiere collections come in a wide range of cup sizes up to a 38 band.  The collection is designed in London using standard UK sizes ranging from A – D, DD, E, F, FF, and G, which means that the shaping and structure of the garments enhances curves beautifully. Full-figured women will look amazing in these bras and knickers.

I love the color blocking of the Sophia collection, as well as the photo-shoot inspired by the Italian goddess, Sophia Loren. I adore the 60’s vibe and the color panels that flatter the eye, while the nylon-spandex blend offers comfortable, breathable support.

The collection is a wonder-of-threes, featuring three different bra shapes and matching bottoms, in three different color-ways (a deep sea grey & white, mauve & peach, and turquoise & yellow).

Sophia bras include a convertible-strapless, an unlined demi, and a lined underwire balconette. Mix and match with a boy-leg brief, a high-waisted brief with detachable garter, or a a bikini-thong that looks incredibly comfortable.

The ‘Cool Cotton’ collection is a perfect basic set which comes in black, mauve, or white. The breathable cotton-poly blend will keep you cool and comfortable, in the most flattering, supportive way!

I also love the seductive mesh contrast of the Dessous collection which comes in black, mauve, leopard print, and neon pink! So flirty and cute!

The new AW 2011 collections from Claudette will be debuting online and at select retailers in the US and UK.

I have such a crush on Tallulah Love! The styling, the construction, the colors…oh goodness!  I’m fanning myself here, seriously!

Lets start with their luxury gift boxes, shall we?  They remind me of vintage hat boxes and I just love the idea of keeping dainty lingerie in pretty boxes! They can be added to any order, and there are three unique designs to choose from. What a perfect way to give the gift of lingerie! ♥

For the penchant cross between Great Gatsby 1920’s decadence and Gypsy Rose’s lingerie closet, do step into the world of Tallulah Love.

I am still waiting for Tallulah Love to break into more US boutiques; perhaps I will have to take the initiative, open a little boutique of my own, and fill it with their sexy and sophisticated fashions! I look forward to that day!  ♥

In the meantime, here’s an adorable lingerie set from Ayten Gasson; I love the styling and vintage-look of the bra and tap pants.  I am so obsessed with tap pants!!  They are on my list of pretty things to stock up on!
